Lauramid® application example: Printing industry

The quality of a printed product depends to a large degree on the quality and the interplay of the printing machine components.

In order that perfect printed materials are produced at the end of the process, these components have to run as smoothly and with as little vibration as possible. And preferably extremely quietly, for a long time and lubricant-free. This is the perfect area of application for PA 12 C Lauramid®, that has already proven itself in printing machines as the spur gear, chain wheel or, for example, as cams.
